An encouraging word from Penguin Books!

After an incredibly long dry spell of no feedback from publishers, my agent, the esteemed Abigail Samoun, just forwarded me the following email today, from an editor at Penguin:

Hi Abi,
I just wanted to give you the heads up that I’m reading LIFE AND SETH and am planning to have some feedback for you next week. You weren’t kidding about the voice. It’s awesome.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer.

I'm not gonna mention the editor's name just yet. Maybe in a week. Don't want to unintentionally piss anyone off. But dang, I have to say this email took my breath away. And frankly, I could seriously use some encouragement in the form of an offer. 

So come on, unnamed editor from Penguin, come through for me. 

In the meantime, here are some logo usage guidelines for Penguin, which really does have a beautiful logo:
